My plan was to instead provide convenience "set up the network" functions
to call from the test.

The point is we don't always know what kind of net programs we want to
start, in which order, how. In most cases we do start it up so that it
works, but some tests may want to deliberately omit one component, start
and stop it again, and so forth. So it's for me not a part in the
scenario; the scenario is all about: which hardware and which resources do
we get. The "what do we run" should be completely in the test script.

And about those "shortcut" functions to setup the standard network, we
just never got around to it and went with copy paste for the time being.
